Q: I signed up and typed my ad, but it didn't show up?
A: In your profile form, make sure the "Crewlist Flag" is switched on from "No" to "Yes".
Q: How come you changed my typings?
A: Some people like to cap every letter; some like to lower every letter. Some enter Nationality
in a variaty of ways: usa,us,US,u.s.a, amrica, American, british, english, britain...For the
benefits of "most" of us.
The script modifies your inputs to a default format. It won't be nosy again after your first
Q: Nobody replied to my Crew Ad...
A: Let's face it. There are 3 times more people looking for boats than the number of boats
looking for people. Boats don't contact you. You should contact them.
Q: You're full of sh*t. Some girls' visit counters reach 4 digits while mine stays single.
A: Obviously, some visitors have read them... There is a
large number of male cruising skippers
looking only for female partners. Considering they have to "live" with a crew member for an
extended period of time in such a small private space, I don't blame them a bit. You just have
to look somewhere else.
Q: I'm on the run all the time, what's my current location?
A: Your present location is where you're typing now. If you can update your profile faster
than you move, enter it. You can always elaborate your detailed situation in the description area.
Q: My Hotlink Photo URL doesn't show up.
A: Find it under
another forum topic that I posted.
Q: How to get on the top of the crewlist?
A: Every time you edit your profile, it shows up at the very top. Don't do it every day, though.
It can have negative impact on your prospective visitors.
Q: How do I find out the credibility about a perticular skipper at 7k?
A: No idea. That's one of the reasons what this forum is for. Anyone out there? Please reply!
Q: Whats the tips of getting a position onboard?
A: I don't have the expertise, either. Hope our members who've been there done that post here.
I'll say it depands a lot on your situation to start with. For example,
are you male or female? What passport do you travel with? You sailed, traveled before?
Do you have spending money?
How flexible are you in terms of schedual and location? You have navigation skill, repairing ability,
language skills? Are you a neat person(better match on this one)? Are you willing to do dirty work(you
know, clean heads and rub bottom...)? Do you cook? Do you get seasick? Are you healty?
You smoke? Can they smoke? At the end, your attitude weighs a big portion towards their
decision making. Better stop here, I'm a theorist.
